About the tour

Explore a truly local market in Amsterdam East with Lee. This is her home turf and a vibrant, multicultural neighbourhood street market called the Dapper Market. It lies just outside the famous historic city center and its products truly reflect the diversity of the local residents. Pass by stalls, learn about local Dutch as well as exotic delights: think poffertjes, stroopwafels, strange French fry toppings and Surinamese kitchen, the original fusion food. To finish off, you head to one of the tallest and photogenic of the country's urban windmills to hear about Amsterdam's favourite craft beer.

Meet your local guide


Lee was born into a Dutch family but grew up mainly in Toronto Canada. Trained as a ballet dancer, she left the stage to travel and work around the world, having visited over 100 countries so far. She has been working as a professional Amsterdam guide and boat captain since 2009, and loves to share her knowledge of Dutch history, fun anecdotes, and importantly, of where the best food is!

Lee has been guiding since Aug 2009

Lee did a good job giving us an enjoyable tour looking at local daily life in a guilted/rural part of Amsterdam, she was bright, knowledgable and brought a sense of fun to the tour. Well done.

Always enjoy tours with Lee in The Netherlands. She knows her stuff and has a light hearted approach to the walk.
